a strained muscle around the rib cage
He could take a painkiller and quit bitching about it I'm sure. Players have played through much worse than a strained muscle before.
And you have to know that its not just this injury but the pattern of excuses that have popped up after every game this year. This was just the final straw and the timing is really the issue. Hes obviously cleared to play by the medical staff or else he wouldn't have put pads on and gone through warmups.
Feel free to continue to apologize for Clonwey, but I can't do it anymore.
Also, I've never claimed to be a coach but I'm just giving my opinion. If thats an issue for you then go find the message boards that the coaches post on. Or better yet go over to Cockytalk, you'd fit right in with all the terrible posters over there
